Tempo Playing Cards are inspired by the golden age of jazz. In the 1920s and 30s a new style of music rapidly gained popularity in the United States and artists like Bessie Smith, Cab Calloway, Ella Fitzgerald, and Billie Holiday became household names.
Designed by Michael Mateyko, each card features an Art Deco style illustration that celebrates the spirit of improvisation and musical expression.
Printed by The United States Playing Card Company on our proprietary thin-stock, each deck of Tempo playing cards come packaged in a screen-printed, embossed and foil stamped tuck case.
